    To get rid ("fix") of this:
    Go to Applications -> Accessories -> Passwords and Encryption Keys
    Click Edit -> Preferences
    Select the line that says:

    login Automatically unlocked when user logs in.
    Click Change Unlock Password, type in your Old password and leave fields for new password empty. That's it!

    Don't worry, you are not changing your password really, you are just... let's say, lowering security. Something like turning those stupid messages that ask for your permission to do anything on Vista off....
    I don't have that option. I'm using karmic.

    Login Type: Auto Login

    1 - Go to System >> Administration >> Users and Groups
    2 - Click on "Unlock"
    3 - Highlight the User account you are having the "keyring issue" with >> Click "Properties"
    4 - Click on the tab "User Privileges"
    5 - Check the box "Connect to wireless and ethernet networks" >> click "OK"
    6 - Restart.

    Hope this helps.
    Karmic & autologin.
    Autoconnect to wifi but have to enter keyring pass everytime...
    So your solution didn't work for me.

    I don't know all the technicalities to have a concrete opinion. I just faced the same problem and disabling automatic login seems to have fixed the issue.

    Hi all..

    I had the same problem. It was caused by the IM status plugin in rythmbox. Just disable it.
